was able to change his tone with the race in america speech. last september he gave a speech to the joint seson of congress essentially trying to reexplain the case for his health insurance program. think that given how bad the publicity has been for him in the last two or three weeks and the results of the massachusetts elections he needed to change his presentation of misadministration. i think he was effective in doing that. >> i think, i agree with jim, charlie. i think that the president also needed to explain what he was planning to do. because he now is in a very different position from the one he was in prior to massachusetts. and i think he did a pretty good job of telling us that. i think he gave us two really important pieces of information. one is, he's not giving up on healthcare reform. and the second is something that we hadn't seen him really doing very aggressively prior to the massachusetts vote which is he is going to hold the republican feet to the fire. and if they try to be the party of no as he said tonight, he is really going to try to make them pay in the court of

a minority of the jewish community in america that have any affiliation with the synagogue at all and a much smaller minority of that, 10% of the orthodox, for example. >> has this exploration gone on with respect to th minority of jews who are observant? is there a higher percentage of them who are republicans than democrats? >> not necessarily republicans than democrats because there are urban concentrations, and here in new york they certainly identify as conservative, especially on the social and cultural issues, abortion being the number one, but they -- >> what percentage of registering as a republican? >> precisely, if you're in borough park or brooklyn -- >> because of what's happening in the middle east. >> this could change, very interestingly, yes yet. >> i am measured because the "rabbit" books to a degree because people came to love him -- some did, not everybody but people look at me sadly and say "how could you have killed him?" it is my duty as a novelist to see him through. i thought that kind of man might well come to an early end -- a lot of ex-athletes i have known develo

this change america strategy in afghanistan? >> in yemen i think the strategy that e obama administration has as far as going after al qaeda in yemen with soly militarytrikes is a bit of a miste. it nds to have a muc more robust polic and i think tendency of t u.s. to viewyemen only as a cou terrorism problem at has to be solv is a bit of a mtake. >> rose: ho should they view ? >> well, i think you have to look at what' going on in yemen. men is a country in gat cray i don't say at themoment. there is aivil war inhe rth that's draining off a lot of military resources a the moment. the is a separate insgency which is increasgly violent in the uth. thgovernment is running out of money it loses oil expor. and so i think whathe u.s. needs to do is really work on stability with yemen. because at the momenal qaeda in the arabn peninla. and it's important to remember this is the second incnation of al qaeda that we've dealt with this yemen. this oanization is really eding off of andenefitting from the chaos in yemen. rose: wha else might the administtion by b thinking about this evening for that me
